St. Joseph, Michigan - The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has revised its standard for classifying farm and agricultural injuries.
The revision, ASAE S575.2 NOV2019, Farm and Agricultural Injury Classification (FAIC) Code, provides a more modern and consistent means of classification to individuals assigning codes, regardless of their knowledge of agricultural operations.
The standard is applicable to all farm/ranch and agriculturally related injuries involving any of a wide range of hazards such as machinery, vehicles, animals, plants, structures, equipment, tools, dusts, chemicals, weather/environment, and products associated with production agriculture.
ASABE members with standards access and those with site-license privileges can access the full-text via electronic download on the ASABE online Technical Library at elibrary.asabe.org/. Others can obtain a copy for a fee directly from the library or by contacting ASABE headquarters at OrderStandard@asabe.org.
